Eat foods rich in iron: how to get rid of hair loss

Must read

To restore thinning hair, you need to treat it with care, reduce stress and increase your iron and protein intake. You may think that you are the only person experiencing this, but the surprising truth is that hair loss is very common among both women and men. There are several science-backed lifestyle changes you can try to help your thinning hair grow back, Health writes.

Your emotional and physical state can affect your hair. Telogen loss is hair loss that often occurs due to emotional and physical stress. You can easily pull out a handful of hairs simply by brushing, running your hands through them, or washing with shampoo. There are several ways to control and reduce emotional stress:

  • do things you enjoy (such as listening to music, reading books and chatting with friends),

  • balanced, healthy diet,

  • sufficient amount of sleep,

  • a positive outlook on problems that usually cause you stress,

  • stay physically active

  • Try a relaxation technique (such as meditation or yoga).

Lack of certain nutrients in your diet can cause hair loss. You may develop iron deficiency anemia if you do not consume enough iron in your diet. Sources of iron you can add to your diet include iron-fortified cereals, dried beans, eggs, lean red meat, liver, oysters, and whole grains. Vitamin C improves iron absorption. Try eating iron-rich foods along with citrus fruits, potatoes, strawberries and tomatoes.

You can easily damage already fragile hair by pulling it out or using harsh chemicals. If it falls out or becomes thin, you need to handle it carefully.


Apply conditioner after shampooing to protect hair from breakage and split ends.

Avoid pulling your hair tightly into a bun, braids, cornrows or ponytail. These hairstyles can cause traction alopecia, a type of hair loss that can cause permanent damage. Do not pull or twist your hair around your fingers. Gently comb your hair when necessary. Brushing your hair too hard pulls it, making hair loss worse.


Look for a mild shampoo. Some shampoos are designed specifically for hair loss. After washing your hair, use a rinse or conditioner.

Dyeing your hair too often damages your hair and can make hair loss worse. Avoid bleaching your hair because bleaching usually uses a lot of peroxide, which damages the hair. Instead, choose a paint that is close to your natural shade.


Lupa usually affects the scalp, causing small pieces of dry skin to peel off. A magnifying glass does not directly cause hair loss, but it can cause itchy skin, which makes your hair loss worse.

Previously published doctor’s advice: “For visible results, I recommend using a complex of products – ampoules with aminexil in combination with shampoo.”
